    A decade in the limelight

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 30/12/2019

    » In choosing the 10 best theatre productions of the decade, I started by listing some of my favourite productions, based almost purely on enjoyment. That would not do, of course. The more important questions are those of cultural and artistic impact.

And they excited me then as much as they excite me now, looking back months and years later.

    Angel on a mission

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 27/06/2019

    » The theatre scene is marking a few anniversaries this year. First, B-floor Theatre celebrated its 20th birthday with an outdoor musical version of A Midsummer Night's Dream. This month, an even older company, Dreambox, originally named Dass Entertainment, kicked off its 33rd-anniversary celebration with a revival of an old musical from its early days. The company will bring back another musical in November, Mae Nak: The Musical, which came from what they consider to be the company's second period in their development. And in a few months, Dreambox will stage Namngoen Thae, a new musical adapted from a historical novel of the same name by one of Thailand's most popular novelists, Lin Lyovarin.
